have you thought about learning a language? there is a fantastic school in the village of Vejer where you can either do group classes for a few hours each day, or have individual classes. La Janda will also help you find cheap accomodation with a family, so its perfect for teenagers wanting to brush up on their spanish or students wanting to learn intensively for a month. there is also a 2 week course in july and august which combines spanish and flamenco dance – and even courses with horse riding lessons and yoga!
each time we come to spain – things change – this time is no exception. suddenly we see the rise of a new multi storey car park – which as awful as it sounds, is much needed in an old narrow town 2 km up a mountain – as you can imagine when everybody comes to town for dinner on an evening, parking can be difficult. vejer is definitely becoming a food destination – last night we tried out vera cruz – originally it was started by a frenchman, who then opened another barbecue restaurant close by, and so it was left empty for a couple of years. now, it is spanish food with a touch of japanese – affordable small menu, well presented and well cooked.
we planted a few trees 5 years ago in our small courtyard garden, and this year, i just picked our first fig – how satisfying!
